California Aqueduct II

San Joaquin Valley, California

The California Aqueduct, San Joaquin Valley, California

444 miles long, the California Aqueduct is a complex system of canals and tunnels which collect water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and valley regions of California. The California Aqueduct is the main source of clean water for most Californians.

As I was returning to the San Francisco Bay Area from a Thanksgiving family celebration in Southern California, I noticed that the sunset sky starting to give way to pastel shades of purple and blue as I was coming up upon a scenic overlook. The scenic overlook was adjacent to the California Aqueduct so I used aqueduct as the main focal point for my photo to pair with the beautiful evening sky. "California Aqueduct II" utilizes a similar compositional style as Andreas Gursky's "Rhein II" which was the world's most expensive photo ever sold at the time of sale in 2011. Also similar to "Rhein II", I used Photoshop to clone out a storm drain and some garbage from the foreground.

Silver Halide Fine Art Photo Print - Ready To Frame

California Aqueduct II print

Fuji Crystal Archive is a silver halide photo paper which has incredible sharpness and detail. I print on matte surfaces to eliminate glare. Each print features a one-inch white border around the live image area to provide maximum flexibility while framing. Loose prints are the ideal choice for interior designers or collectors who plan to work with a professional framer. Beginning in 2019, I will be custom signing all individual prints with a digital signature for provenance unless requested otherwise.

Based on my own experience, I would suggest choosing a UV-protected, non-glare acrylic surface for framing rather than glass. I can either ship directly to you or your framer of choice.

Dye-sublimation ChromaLuxe metal prints have excellent contrast and saturation which make for a modern, eye-catching fine art photography print. ChromaLuxe prints are scratch and weather-resistant which make them ideal for high-traffic locations including hospitals, hotels, offices and restaurants. These are the most cost-effective and durable ready-to-hang prints I offer.

My ChromaLuxe metal prints come with a glossy finish featuring vibrant, saturated colors. The edge mount frame is 1.3" thick and comes ready to hang. The back of the print includes my signature backstamp. Beginning in 2019, I will be custom signing all individual prints with a digital signature for provenance unless requested otherwise.

Lumachrome Acrylic Face Mount - Ready To Hang

Lumachrome Acrylic Face Mount - Ready To Hang

The ultimate in luxury fine art printmaking today. Lumachrome HD Acrylic face mounts are the most visually-stunning type of prints that you can own. The finest details appear to emerge in 3D from the depths of the photo with the Lumachrome process thanks to the transparency layer that is infused with iridium particles (one of the rarest metals found on Earth) and is captured in a layer suspended between the white poly surface and museum-grade TruView acrylic. The resulting print almost appears as if it is backlit. Beginning in 2019, I will be custom signing all individual prints with a digital signature for provenance unless requested otherwise.

This ready-to-hang print includes a 1/8" acrylic face mount with a 6mm or 12mm Comatex backing and an HD Italian ROMA back mounted floating frame.
